A man is dead following an incident involving a wheel coming off a vehicle on the QEW in Oakville and striking several cars, according to OPP.

In a social media post just after 1 p.m., Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said the wheel came off a westbound vehicle and struck three others travelling eastbound at Winston Chruchill Boulevard.

“OPP are currently on scene along with fire, paramedics, and the MTO,” Schmidt said.

“We have a full highway closure of the QEW Toronto bound at Ford drive. All traffic is being forced off. The westbound QEW remains open at this time.”
